I wanted to show the ambiguity of the situation and their parts in it. Seemingly it’s Ressler who towers over Red and is in a seemingly more dominant pose and role, since it’s definitely Red who’s going to blow him, as it is obvious from the context. But Red seems calm and relaxed, very much into what he’s doing and determined to get what he wants, while Don is rigid, unsure and stricken by what’s going on. I think there’s an inner monologue inside of his head that says “Fuck you Red…well, I didn’t mean literally…shit, it won’t come out of my head from now on. Oh, you unpredictable mother fucker, what do I do with you? That’s all wrong, right? Or is is not? Fuck…fuck…fuck…just don’t fucking stop!”. So Red is in control, even though, I don’t think he had ever done something like this to another man, He just takes it as a challenging adventure…just like his naked mescaline trip in a desert. And, to be honest, it’s so nice to tease Donald, to lure him into that wicked game, to make him react like this. So at first, he probably didn’t intend to go all the way, and meant only to provoke Don a bit. But then, when he saw Don blushing and breathing heabily, he thought “well….well…well….”, and ventured further.
Lidi (slash-paradise), who actually requested this picture from me, wanted Don’s hair being loose…so I did. Your wish is my command, sweetheart :)
P.S.: I’ve worked a bit more on this one, than on the previous. So they look a bit differnt when it comes to style. But still they should be viewed as diptique telling the same story. Probably there will be a third one more to go. ;-)
